MINI Online combines numerous services and apps in one neat package to keep you abreast of everything that’s happening around you. It is continuously being updated with new apps as we seek to provide extra functionality and benefits for our users*.
You stay in the picture with the latest news that is continuously updated by Thomson Reuters / CBC / AFP and other news providers*. The content you receive is selected according to your preferred categories, such as business or sport, world and panorama (may vary according to market and language). To ensure you keep concentrating on the road and traffic ahead while you drive, the selected news items can be read out via the text-to-speech audio function if required. You can also save your individual RSS feeds.
We'll keep you informed of the weather you can expect at your destination.
